The votes are in and it wasn’t even close! The award for The New Yorker Story of the Year for 2012 goes to “Breatharians” by Callan Wink.
The story was a little controversial because of its depiction of some very realistic animal cruelty, but there’s no question that it was memorable. For our discussion here, see: Breatharians by Callan Wink. To read the story in the magazine, go here. (The story is behind a paywall.)
